ESPN’s Nick Friedell: Ep. 29

Nick Friedell

Nick Friedell has not only covered the Chicago Bulls for ESPN the last 8 years; he’s lived as a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan his entire life – a trait passed down by his grandmother, who attended the last World Series game the Cubs played in.

As you can imagine, with the Cubbies making it to their first Fall Classic since 1945 and the Bulls season starting the same week, Nick and I had plenty to talk about in this episode, including whether just this one World Series win would be enough for his whole life.

Keep up with Nick and his latest by following him on Twitter or checking out ESPN Chicago.
